In simple words, getting “glass” or dewy skin starts with self-care. Ready to embrace your skin’s beauty from the inside out. Here’s how you can get a glass or dewy skin that shines even in dry weather.
- Start Your Daily Skincare Routine with a Quality Cleanser
The key to dewy skin starts with a clean and fresh face. Start your skincare routine with a good cleanser. A cleanser helps your skin to remove dirt, oils, and makeup from the skin and deep pores. Choose a product that is not drying, instead of hydrating so that your skin retains enough moisture to the skin to withstand further makeup you apply.
- Apply a Hydrating Toner
Toner helps to create a healthy glow and optimal hydration. Choose a toner that is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, so your skin is left smooth and vibrant.
In the Korean skincare routine, toner is applied by vigorously patting into the skin, this trick helps in increasing circulation in the skin and left your skin smooth and vibrant.
- Exfoliate Once or Twice a Week
This is one of the most important steps, that cannot be skipped. Exfoliation helps to get that dewy look, say experts. It helps to remove dead layers of skin and helps to reveal your brighter complexion. Choose a hydrating scrub that is enriched with an organic and skin-friendly ingredient like antioxidants that control the production of skin-damaging free radicals.
- Massage Your Face with a rich serum or face oil
Serum or face oil boosts the hydration of your skin, it keeps your skin supple and prevents dryness, but it also provides the perfect foundation for you to apply your makeup.
If you are purchasing an exfoliator, invest in those, enriched with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid works as a sponge that pulls in water to the outer skin layer. Hyaluronic acid-rich serum enhances hydration, and radiance, and offers a plumping effect.
- Moisturize Your Face before applying makeup
To get dewy and glowing skin, experts recommend choosing a moisturizer that absorbs right into the skin and makes it soft and supple without leaving it greasy. Moisturizers make the makeup application smooth that easily slides across the skin rather than settle on the skin. You should invest in a good kind of moisturizer that provides intense hydration.
- Apply a hydrating Mask Once or Twice a Week
In the evening, it’s very crucial to hydrate and revive your tired and dull skin after a long day of exposing it to the outside environment, your office, or your gym. It does not only lock the hydration but also calms redness or inflammation that will naturally occur during your day-to-day. Try a hydrating mask that is rich in essential fatty acids to promote elasticity and prevent moisture loss.
- Try an illuminating face primer
Before applying makeup, you should apply a face primer that nourishes and hydrates the skin. This will not only lock in moisture but also make your skin plump and aid in maintaining that healthy glow throughout the day. Primer minimizes the skin’s pores which is important for a healthy bright dewy face.
- Avoid matte foundations
If you want your makeup to look dewy and glowing, use a product that is more like an anti-aging hydrating moisturizer that provides medium to full coverage.
- Add some extra glow with a luminizer and highlighter
Highlighter is an important aspect of the makeup look, it softly reflects and diffuses light. Apply the highlighter on the high points of the face like the tops of cheekbones, to achieve the desired glow. But don’t apply it too much, to achieve the super glossy ‘glass skin’ dewy look, he recommends mixing a little highlighter with your foundation and applying some finishing touches with the highlighter at the very end.
